Edvard Munch

Edvard Munch (12 December 1863 - 23 January 1944) was a Norwegian painter and printmaker, and also an important precursor of expressionist art. His best-known work, The Scream, is part of the The Frieze of Life series, in which Munch explored themes of life, love, fear, death and melancholy.
Munch was very influential, especially with the German Expressionists, who followed his philosophy: 'I do not believe in art that is not the compulsive result of man's desire to open his heart'. Many of his paintings, including The Scream, have a universal appeal in addition to their very personal meaning.Munch's works are now represented in many major museums and galleries in Norway and abroad. After the end of the Cultural Revolution in the People's Republic of China, Munch was the first Western artist to exhibit his paintings in the National Gallery in Beijing.
